You can do much better Polaris!!! 2/5
Few gripes with this app that have been there since the beginning (I hate when I see companies release more features in updates before they fix existing issues). Here are some that are frustrating, making using this app a bad experience:
1) Allow the app to work upside down! Like most people, my phone is mounted upside down in my RZR so the phone charge cord points up and goes up into the corner of the roll bar and down the inside of the bars AS POLARIS DESIGNED THEM. 👎👎
2) Please don't change our whole experience when turning the screen horizontal! This is VERY frustrating & unnecessary, just change the view to landscape and keep all the same options I was viewing in portrait. We loose almost all options to do anything in landscape mode. To make things worse, if you have scrolled around the map in portrait mode and turn phone horizontal to get a wider view of the land, you loose you place you scrolled to on the map and it takes you back to your current location! GRRR 😡
3) Allow us to share our finished ride with our friends who weren't part of the group ride! Seems like a huge oversight to not have this option in today's world. I have long distance friends who can't always ride with me and currently there is no way to share my past epic rides or saved trails with them! 👎👎
It works but 3/5
By Lance willy
Needs more development
merge with google maps
not crash so much
i use ios and offline maps doesn't display at times of need like it cant draw out location when it's an offline file
Sort of useful now 3/5
Crashes using the iOS version. Same with Android version. Not a very mature product. Not worth the money even for a "free" app.
New version now works on my iPad. But only in portrait mode. You're getting there fellas.
Becoming Useless 1/5
By Saberwolf 700
Crashes crashes crashes. Did I mention it crashes?
Hope you can get all the info you need in 10 seconds because that's all you're going to get.
Still crashing on iOS constantly. 2/5
This would be a great app if they can fix all the bugs. It crashes reviewing maps using satellite view. It crashes adding photos to check points. Also after adding a checkpoint during a ride it stopped showing my bread crumb trail. It seems they have been updating it more often recently so I'm hoping all the bugs are being worked out.
It's crashing when I'm using the map and it does it 10 seconds when I open the app
App crashes and closes when I try to accept terms and conditions 1/5
By Dad - Jim
Can't use app as can't get past that screen?
So far worthless 1/5
Downloaded app. Once I created an account and try to log in it just automatically crashes every time you open
Offline maps 4/5
Just now figuring out this app. Used it this week with offline maps. Lost cell coverage quite a bit, but was able to watch progress on maps continually. Great app.
Good start 4/5
By Copper Genius
Looks pretty good so far. One thing I would like to see in the weather section is wind speed, when I ride in the sand, that's very important.
Menu missing 4/5
Updated to latest version, maps there but menu gone. Help
3/14/17. Found the menu. Prefer to use maps in landscape orientation, menu only shows if you use the portrait orientation.
Also, why can we only download three states?
Changing rating to a four star.
6/13/17 I have been using the app in the General 4 now for about a month. On the whole it works well, however I do have a few suggestions. We were in Taylor Park for two weeks, and are now riding in the Lake City area.
On an iPad, bouncing down rough trails with sunny skies, the contrast between the trails and the background needs to be increased. Trying to handle the app while moving is also awkward. Moving the app sends it into three-d mode, making the progression down the trail hard to see. Could you keep it in 2-d or as a setting? Also, could you make the app background keep up with the marker for the location of the Polaris (like the truck and Jeep gps)?
Would be glad to beta test-- retired IT.
Getting close to a 5!
Title?? It's a review. 3/5
By Someone who gets it
Why not go satellite connection like MotionXGPS? If I ride an area that has no cellular connection then this app is useless, can't download maps for offline use when you do lose cell connectivity. So you must plan upcoming rides with prior knowledge of the areas cell connection. Not very good for the exploration type riding some of us like to do. Great for trips you've been on and have already learned the cell connection areas and you can download prior. Great idea, great user base, I think it needs to go Satellite. Great that Can Am riders can use it as well. Haha.
Great app 5/5
I use this app all the time while riding quads. Works great while riding by your self or with a group. It shows you marked trails by your state or you can track your ride and follow your way back. Will always use while riding quads
Trail guide is extremely inaccurate
FIX LANDSCAPE MODE 2/5
When using iPad mini I cannot do ANYTHING in landscape... no menus nothing!! I have my iPad mounted in my general and cannot justify using it without it working in landscape... would be the best if this is fixed!!
Very satisfied 4/5
This app is great for our destination trips across the states. One kink that stands out is that the speedometer and compass do not appear on the GPS dash mode on my iPad. Just my iPhone 6s. Otherwise I love it
Map options gone from iPad 3/5
Map options disappeared - please fix!!!
Does not work 1/5
By Emmie lo who
Menus gone in latest version. iPad Air 2
Lost trails on latest revision 1/5
Lost trails in Washburn county WI on latest release. How do I get them back?
Cannot sign up 4/5
The app seems useful but I cannot sign up or create an account. I just keep getting an error.
Don't bother 1/5
If you ride in NE Washington or the Panhandle of Idaho don't bother, the info is incorrect.
For some reason I can not get the create a group ride for nothing. Every time I have tried I get a error. Only thing this app has done is keep up with my service done on it.
By Outdoor gear
I would love to overlay my maps. If I could title a location and continue to add to that map it would be great.
Awesome app one suggestion 5/5
Such a great app and awesome they keep improving it. One feature which would be awesome is have the tracker show speed as well.
Polaris Ride Command 1/5
Ever since downloading an offline map, the app crashes within seconds of launching.
Must have, great riding app! 5/5
I used this in Ohio, Wayne national Forest. All trails are there on the screen, you can see where you've been, where you're at, and where you're going, it's just awesome! Please add trailheads. The app could use a few refinements, but it's a must-have for off-roaders!
Can't wait to use it in West Virginia Hatfield McCoy.
Installed on iPad mini w/retina display 5/5
It crashes trying to set up a group. I sent app to trash and reinstalled from scratch and now it's working like intended.
Was a great app 2/5
Last update was not good. Group rides are gone. Can't save changes in profile. Be nice to be able to revert back to old version until it fixed!!!!
What happened? 1/5
By Brian 2017 rzr
App was working great yesterday. After the update my groups rides are gone and the when I try to add a new one I get an error.
Snow Command 3/5
By Bored Now 7
Looks a lot like RiderX, but the first thing I noticed is that ATV trails keep coming up even though snowmobile is chosen as vehicle. If you switch from snowmobile to ATV the back to snowmobile, snowmobile trails will then display.
Doesn't seem to merge well with the original riderx version 2/5
I logged a bunch of rides using the original riderx version of the app and out of nowhere riderx became Polaris ride command and most of my tracked rides didn't merge with the new system. I don't know if there is a fix for this but it's extremely annoying....
Works on Phone don't on IPad Mini 3/5
Well love using the app since I have a iPad mount on my Rzr. But since the update from Rider X it doesn't work on my mini iPad. I need this fixed even the picture on the app shows a iPad mini for crying out loud.
No Polaris Link support 1/5
Ride Command currently don't support Polaris Link. Please bring that back.
Won't open!! 1/5
Wrote a review which wasn't good as the app will not open. It's on my updated iPhone , it wanted me to rated it! How can you rate something that doesn't even show you anything but the opening page and it wouldn't let me send it so I lied and put one star so it tried to send but told me my nickname was already used so it cancelled the whole review. Thanks Here is the I'm not happy at all review. Hope it likes this nickname
Won't open 1/5
I cannot get the app to open on my iPad mini. It opens fine on my iPhone 6plus. I will update my review after my first ride.
I did email support and they said they are focusing on phones first, then tablets.
Now broken 1/5
Can no longer open app. Starts to open but then quickly closes. Don't they test this stuff before it gets released? Guess we are the testers.......
Updates broke it 3/5
Received two updates. Neither worked and now it will not even load. Try it again soon thanks
No cell service=No group ride 2/5
Great concept. Beautiful interface but still lacking a lot of features and detail that come with other navigation apps. Group ride looks great on the commercial but If you ride in the remote deserts of AZ,NV and UT like we do, this app is hardly useful without cell service. All you get is a bare bones offline map. You cannot see your other group riders. But hey, group ride works great chasing my friends around the neighborhood.
Don't fix it if it ain't broken! 1/5
The RiderX app that came before the new version was much better when using my iPhone! Now I don't have a list of tracked rides, it doesn't even fit the screen of my phone?? I think you need to talk to the guys working your bugs out before they release an updated version. I recommended the RiderX app to many people but I'll NOT recommend the updated Ride Command.
Update please! 4/5
By Nickname created!!
Ill give this app a solid 4.5 stars! I love every bit of this app except that i cant exclude the tracks. I only want OHV parks and riding parks and polaris shops to be shown, im not a track rider and i dont want them shown and it would be a 5 star rating!
Great App 5/5
It's a must have for the trails. Tracks my rides and the maps are fairly detailed as far as my area goes. Heard from friends it's great in other parts of the country too!
Even lets you pause the trip so you aren't wasting battery life doing nothing. They are right in their disclaimer, it will kill your battery. My advice is if you are out riding, make sure you download the map for offline use and then put your iPhone into airplane mode. Used 50% power on a 4 hour ride.
Frustrating and a piece of crap. Don't waste your money. Sure there are maps. That's the only good thing.. The "garage" is so bogus..VIN? Right! And every great trail nearby seems to be missing. Save your $$ buy a paper map or call a friend who knows.
By Joe man ffff
I will put 5 star when you give us back satellite view.
Wish it worked 1/5
Seems like it would be a good app but I can't register or sign up and is it have tried several times hope they can fix it
iPads no longer have landscape mode! 1/5
WHAT THE HECK POLARIS?! I bought the riderx link and I cannot even use it to its full potential thanks to your stupid app and p*** poor developers.
Landscape issues 4/5
I have the Polaris wireless link with the iPad mini 2 and when I turn on gauges in landscape mode the map will not go full screen, works well otherwise.
Crashing. Won't even open on my iPad mini. Issues galore. When it did work, I wished they would have included the ability to run the app landscape.
Big problems with new version 1/5
Can't see any details on the map. All you can see are 'I' icons but no map trails. Not even state borders, nor road markers so you know where you're looking. This needs to be fixed. Once you make the map useful, the new interface should work out well and I'll change rating. But for now, it seems you've rendered the app useless.
Been lurking about few weeks, WOW! 5/5
By Rusch Motorsports
Newbie ATV riders looking riding trails, trying this app, been lurking about the app and various riding locations, app looks to AWESOME, love the weather integration, hoping to try out a few trails soon.
Only criticism thus far, would be nice to have a "legend" on the map or accessible in menu, describing what the different colors of trails mean, Orange vs Green.
